    Add some nickel plate and they would be very unique. But i found my fixings now so saves me doing 50 of these boys!!!

    Thanks, i hope i have one for you :)

    Still pondering the side panel, but i don't want to much going on on the outside as its what's inside where i want the attention.

    Thanks guys.

    Well the wait is over!

    Got a good 5 hours work done today! Sorry for the crap photos, I’m going to stop using my phone now, most of them where blurred!

    Got 1 of the 3 stripes that will hold the flooring together drilled and tapped.

    I took these off the mobo tray as well, aids the clean look and allows me to flush more off with the backing plate, I was suppressed how ridged it was without them.
    [​IMG]


    Then it was on to the new back panel, I did some fancy bending and cutting to fill a hole that was left after I did he last back plate, bit of lead later will seal it all up.
    [​IMG]


    Then on the alli backing plate, I cocked up the last 2 cuts (tired) so ordering a new piece of alli. I see this as a blessing in disguise as I wanted this sheet to be 2mm and my friend could only get me 1.5. It also means I can finish working with this piece, get it all perfect, and then use it as a template when I get the new bit.
    [​IMG]

    Here you can see I cut the bits out the wrong side, on both sides *face palm*
    [​IMG]

    So I chopped it all off so it went it :)
    [​IMG]


    I also got some new blanking screws, I prefer the hex once to the once a few posts back.
    [​IMG]

    Might be able to work on it some more tom, stay tuned :)

    Skorch.

    thanks guys, managed to make good progress this weekend.

    More work done today.

    I drilled the holes top the other ends of the pumps. Im not going to mount the fan as shown below now as it just look out of place, i will be purchasing a 12mm slim line fan to go inside the box and just had a rad grill laserd on the to bottom of the box. Im also changing the box slighty to direct the air flow of this fan down the back of the mobo to keep this cool. I read somewhere there airflow over the back of the mobo increased the max overclock.

    Excuse the ugly fittings, all my new once are not the right size so I'm trying to get the replaced. alltho 4 days and still no email back about it!!! ARGGHHH
